with Dorothy Holt and Janet Holt, mother and daughter who were nurses at
Washington Corrections Center, for $40,000 for wrongful termination.
Plaintiff's brought suit after being terminated for complaining to the
Washington State Labor and Industries Safety Inspector about needles and
containers that they believed to be unsafe. PLN has previously reported L&I
sanctions against other WA prisons based on whistle-blower complaints of
medical neglect and unsafe medical conditions. Plaintiff's were represented
by Gary H. Sexton, Attorney At Law. See: Holt v. State Of Washington; Mason
